Introducing Bahías Peninsula Papagayo by Antoine Predock
Situated on 17 acres overlooking islands and back-to-back bays, Bahías is set apart by its elevated design. Meticulously constructed to blend seamlessly into the landscape, each residence thoughtfully emerges from the bluffs suspended in the forest canopy 250 feet above the Pacific Ocean. Each unique residence sits on a lot of up to two acres with 8,500 to 10,500 square feet of combined indoor and outdoor living. The homes offer two or three levels and feature private infinity-edge pools, spas, «glamping rooms», private garages and more. Owners will have the opportunity to personalize their homes with custom furnishings and decor.
«In Costa Rica, nature is a dominating force,» said Predock, Founder and Principal of Antoine Predock Architect. «When you come to Papagayo, you are not merely looking at nature, you are in it. We wanted to create a fully immersive experience that would honor the cultural landscape – not to bring something predetermined, but to derive our design out of the place itself.»
